One Pot …

Back to a one pot dish (skipped a couple of weeks), some for The Mouse’s dinner, some for The Cat’s lunch. Keeping it simple.

Sliced Pork Belly

From the Korean grocery store.

Turnips

Again from you know where.

Blanched Pork Belly, Kimchi

Blanched Pork Belly, Kimchi

The Cat says turnips and pork is a classic combination in Chinese cooking.

Turnips, pork belly, red miso, gojujang (from my Bibimbap lunch), leaf kimchi (just a little bit), water, soju.

Low temp simmer.

Turnip and Pork Belly Stew, Miso and Gojujang Flavor

Turnip and Pork Belly Stew, Miso and Gojujang Flavor

First day taste was a little “interesting”. Today, the flavors mellowed and combined. Yes!

Bowl of rice, stew (with gravy). Perfect.

Enjoy. Eat well.

A Little Bit of This …

And a little bit of that.

Korean grocery store, cold tables offering various prepared vegetables and foods, charging by the pound.

Been wanting to try a few things from the table but not exactly knowing what is what, always a bit hesitant. Saturday, put on my big mouse pants and gave a few things a shot (nothing too exotic).

The Mouse’s Saturday night dinner.

Kimbab, Rolled Egg Omelet, Prepared Choi Sum, Spicy Fried Tofu (two ways)

Kimbap, Rolled Egg Omelet, Prepared Choi Sum, Spicy Fried Tofu (two ways)

All from the Korean grocery store.

Still not up to trying the raw spicy crab and other unfamiliar offerings. One step at a time.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not really, planned to stop in to look for The Cat’s Valentine’s Day gift, part of it anyway. But, a food tour of Seoul was on the Travel Channel.

Saturday, for most of the day, freak shower and wind weather. First Korean grocery store in Kalihi didn’t have the item I was looking for. The branch near Ala Moana did. More on that next time.

Lunch was at the grocery store, it was already past lunch time.

Bi Bim Bap

Pretty good being in a styrofoam container. Definitely order again.

Kimchi and Gojiuang Sauce

Ate the kimchi, took the Guojujang sauce home for a future dish.

Seaweed Soup

Came with the order, not the greatest, but since it came with the order … ok.

Also order a fried potato thingy.

Spiral Cut Potato Thingy

Cross between a chip and french fry. Not sure if this was Korean, Good though.

Part 2 tomorrow.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Late Night Eating

The Cat worked late tonight. Plus trying to clear the refrig.

The Cat's Bowl

The Cat’s Bowl

Since The Cat likes “squishy” food, ancient grain “jook”, leftover pork chop, white stem cabbage, dried seaweed.

The Mouse not that enthused with “squishy” food.

The Mouse's Plate

The Mouse’s Plate

Ancient grains, smoked pork, pan charred celery, egg, and white stemmed cabbage garnish.

The Cat and The Mouse each like their respective dishes. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse

Simple

The Cat’s in her busy season. The Mouse doesn’t want to make too much of a mess to clean up. Dinner.

Asian Pear, Banana, and Smoked Pork Sliders with Shiso

Asian Pear, Banana, and Smoked Pork Sliders with Shiso

Stove not dirty, one dish to wash, finger food. 🙂

Sorry, nothing too exciting, although The Mouse was happy. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Tomorrow is Friday! Hee hee.
